Obviously, I liked this pose. Had already painted it in August of 2009, but didn't realize it until yesterday! Both paintings have one 3 hour session...I figure I should finish at least one of them, what'cha think? Same same, but different!
I forced me to be slow, and still got to this point in 3 1/2 hours. She still needs work, obviously, but no more than I've been able to paint for the past 6 months I'm happy.
Here is the stopping point today: She looks pretty good until you compare with the photo...and, yes, I signed it because I like to carve into the wet paint. Doesn't stop me from going back into it again, though. Her skin needs toned down.
